with Devon Spencer-Smith
Sunday, June 23, 2013
Do you have lower back pain? You are not alone. "Back pain is the second most common neurological ailment in the United States - only headache is more common." (National Institute of Health). Yoga can be an asset in both strengthening muscles to create back support as well as stretching muscles to ease back tension and discomfort. Pranayama, or breath control, is also a useful tool in alleviating pain from targeted areas of the back which may carry the most stress. Sign up for our low back workshop to be introduced to safe and gentle exercises which alleviate pain and support the road to recovery.
